Happy Canada Day!

July 1....a day to reflect on what it means to be Canadian (cue National Anthem music in background).
Canada ROCKS!
I have to tell you about a very special event that happened to BOF and me in May.  We met the PRIME MINISTER!!!  at a sports event.  Yes, I was a bit of a stalker and approached him for a photo, thinking "Isn't this going to be the most amazing bit of Show & Tell that my daughter could bring in to show her teacher and class!!"
PM Stephen Harper, BOF and Moi (Note the intentional inclusion of French)

Let me tell you, when his baby blues met my browns, I felt a teeny thrill of a crush going on! (Do NOT think Monica Lewinsky, people!)

The PM's official photographer actually took this photo and gave me a little official business card with a number.  I was supposed to email his office my number and then they emailed me this official photo! Yay!

So when I got the photo, I was soooo excited and printed it off and gave it to BOF.  Her reaction was less than enthused,  "No Mom, I don't want to take this to school. It's not like he's Justin Bieber or anything."

What?!?!? A momentous photo like this and she doesn't want to show it to all her friends???

I asked my friend Photoshop for help, and this is what we came up with....
PM Justin Bieber, BOF and Moi.

Now she can have Justin, and I can have Stephen!

I just hope the "Feds" don't come after me for this :)


  1. LOL! Funny. Very cool that you met Stephen as well. :)

  2. He is handsome and when I (think) I saw him with William and Kate on the news this morning. . . I knew who he was.

    Hey Kelly-check my blog. I have an award for you. (Forgive me in advance if it seems like a lot of trouble)

  3. Popped over from Coindy's blog, LOL your story was to funny, love the style of your blog, will pop over again as time allows x

  4. We all have our idols, no matter how old we are. Great post, as always.

  5. OMG you crack me up girl! Love the photoshop. Both are very scrapworthy!

  6. LOL---love the Photoshop work. I still don't get the Justin Beiber thing. It's official, I'm getting old.

  7. When did Justin Beiber develop a paunch?, that is meet the PM of Canada!! Great photos...great story!

  8. I was looking through your blog tags and saw that "Justin Bieber" was a tag of yours. Curiosity got the best of me. Hee! Really cute story. Love the photoshopping!
